The Scorpion Rules was a bit of a let down. While I find the concept of artificial intelligence taking control of the world terrifying, the novel only introduces two AIs. I wanted to know more about the world ruled by the Tales, the AI responsible for the ruthless new order that has its leaders give up their children and kill them if they then decide to go to war with one another. But the setting is limited and the characters themselves did not move me as much as I’d like. Overall, I was underwhelmed by this novel. Look for my full review later this week.
